He lost his original body during a transmutation to try to bring his mother back, and his soul was attached to a suit of armor by his older brother Edward.

Alphonse Elric was born in 1900 to Trisha Elric and Hohenheim of Light. He grew up in Resembool and his family was friends with the nearby Rockbells, and became childhood friends with Winry Rockbell. His father Hohenheim left when he was very young. He began to learn alchemy at a young age with his brother Edward from the books that his father had left behind. The first thing he made with alchemy was a doll for Winry that he created with Edward's help. When he was just 9 years old his mother collapsed while he and Edward were out of the house. After this she became bedridden and died leaving him and his brother orphans.

He and his brother met Izumi Curtis during a storm where she helped the town. They bothered her into taking them on students. They were given a challenge to survive on a deserted island for a month and figure out what All is One and One is All means. They passed her test and she taught them.

After learning from Izumi he and his brother returned to Resembool where they tried to bring back their mother. It failed and he lost his body. Edward sacrificed his right arm to seal his soul to a suit of armor.

He went with his brother to try to become a State Alchemist.
